Unintended Impact - One Athlete’s Journey from Concussions and Amateur Football to CTE Dementia
Author Jim Proebstle will be here to talk about his book Unintended Impact inspired by the tragic CTE dementia outcome from concussions in amateur football. "As an athlete, Dick was revered; yet, success turned traitor as the concussions received in high school and Big Ten (MSU) football led to a world of confusion, poor decision-making, and confinement defined by a wheelchair in a long-term facility. In his multiple levels of impaired functioning, the opportunity for Dick to "get it" – life, that is – was over. He just didn’t know it. Dick was my brother." In 2016, with today’s focus on CTE, lack of knowledge is not acceptable. You won’t want to miss this presentation. Lunch will include a pulled pork sandwich, coleslaw and dessert.
